On April 9-11, twenty one teams from across the U.S., and one team from Canada, traveled to Chapel Hill to compete in the third annual National High School Ethics Bowl, hosted by the Parr Center for Ethics. Congratulations to The Waterford School (first place), Phillips Exeter Academy (second place), Areté Preparatory Academy (third place), and to the Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School, who won the Spirit of the Ethics Bowl award! All of the teams were terrific, as were the judges, moderators, and volunteers who made the weekend a success!
